Spirit is Willing (Ophelia Wylde): Max McCoy
It's one of the strangest
trials in Colorado history. A "spirit
photographer" is accused of fraud, and Ophelia
Wylde agrees to examine the man's ghostly portraits and
testify in court. In a sealed room, she is presented
with five photographs. Four are obvious fakes. But one
photo - featuring a powerful politician, Jackson Miles,
with a sorrowful ghost in chains behind his shoulder -
is the real McCoy. When Ophelia makes contact, the
spirit is in such agony that she's unable to learn
anything but his name: Angus Wright. Intrigued, Ophelia
sets out to learn more about the wronged Mr. Wright and
discovers he was murdered nearly twenty years ago during
the Gold Rush. The politician is somehow involved, and
Ophelia has to watch her step. Because the living are
much more dangerous than the dead.

In Thrall (New Scotland Yard): Anne Cleeland
Kathleen Doyle is a plucky Irish redhead. Chief
Inspector Michael Acton is a British lord turned cop.
He's tall, handsome and enigmatic - to a fault. Acton
selects Doyle out of the newbie squad to partner with
him on a series of investigations because she always
knows when someone is lying - a trait that comes in
handy when interviewing suspects and witnesses. Acton
and Doyle are sent to investigate the murder of a
trainer at a racetrack. Soon, new killings related to
the first start unfolding, dragging the two into ever
more perilous situations. But the real danger is the
unlikely attachment that develops between the
ultra-reserved aristocratic Chief Inspector and his
plucky working class sidekick - a relationship that will
raise plenty of eyebrows - and hackles - among their
colleagues at the Yard.
